Lower Eashing Farmhouse is a landmark Grade II listed building dating back to the 16th century, with later additions in the 18th & 19th Centuries. The white painted rendered double frontage holds a prominent position within the village and offers a charming and grand street view.
Approached via a central pathway and through the surrounding white picket fence, a pitched entrance porch gives way to a broad and spacious reception hallway. The drawing room leads off to the left and is flooded with light by the dual aspect Georgian style shuttered windows. An open fireplace, with metal hearth and Chippendale mantle, adds to the grand feeling that this wonderful room offers.
On the opposite side of the hallway a formal dining room is positioned, again with shuttered windows and high ceilings. In addition to the formal reception rooms, a cloakroom and utility also lead from the main hall. A rear hallway leads through to the study and the family room which is 19 square in size and further benefits from dual aspect windows. With high ceilings the well-proportioned principle reception rooms all enjoy views over the gardens and grounds.
A farm house style kitchen with a large central island creates a true hub of the home. This is the oldest part of the building; its exposed timbers and cottage style windows adding real charm and character. A wide range of units with plenty of preparation surfaces are ideal for families and chefs alike. A side door opens out into the walled garden and a rear doorway leads to the boot room and larder. A low rise and broad staircase lead from the reception hall up to a split-level landing with a large central window. The master bedroom is positioned to the front of the building with dual aspect windows, fitted wardrobes and a concealed vanity unit with basin. Four further double bedrooms, a dressing room/study and four bathrooms.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
The front garden, edged by an attractive white picket fence, is beautifully presented with a row of lime trees. A gravel driveway to the side offers ample parking and leads down to the garages and outbuildings.
To the left-hand side of the building a stunning walled and private lawn garden has been well stocked with an array of shrubs, plants and trees. Towards the front of the garden the barn, which has been immaculately kept, with two full height doors, honey coloured oak frame and internal storage room, forms a boundary between the garden and road.
To the rear of the house a small courtyard leads from the boot room to a good-sized greenhouse and potting area, and an outside toilet. The first outbuilding offers garaging for one car with an L-shaped section for garden machinery storage. A second garage also offers a separate workshop area. The third outbuilding is a spacious store with shelving. The rear garden area is a small paddock with apple trees. Towards the rear of the garden, and behind a high beech hedge, is a strip of land suitable for growing vegetables and fruit.
